Just Sold By Valaree Byrne in Hammock Lake! 5001 Hammock Lake Drive

1List Price: $5,700,000

www.5001HammockLakeDr.com

This is another classic example of Miami real estate moving at break-neck speed! We saw this gorgeous home designed by Portuondo and Perotti the first day it was on the market and had our offer turned in that night. These Buyers couldn’t risk losing this magnificent home on Hammock Lake, off Old Cutler Road near Matheson Hammock, especially after a 2-year search. There are splendid lake views from every room, an infinity edge pool, 7 bedrooms with 8 ½ baths, and 2 separate guest cottages.

Congratulations to the Buyers and Sellers!

Congratulations to perhaps some of the hardest working Buyers I have seen!  Following a long and arduous home search (with many highs and lows) we just closed on this beautiful, completely renovated home in “Pinecrest-by-the-Sea”.  “Pinecrest-by-the-Sea” is a nickname for that wonderful Pinecrest neighborhood, Cutler Bay Estates, which lies within the gates of Gables-by-the-Sea, a Coral Gables community just off Old Cutler Road, adjacent to Gulliver Academy.

It didn’t take long to sell this classic “Americana” home on historical Old Cutler Road – I think it also wins an award for the most number of calls I have taken on a listing!  I can’t count how many calls I answered from passerbys (walkers, cyclers, and drivers alike!) who wanted to know more about the lovely, sprawling house under the oaks in Palmetto Bay.  First impressions are everything!

List Price: $1,519,000

I have new neighbors! Just sold this beautiful home next door to my own in South Miami and am so excited (3 more boys on my basketball court!). The Buyers are going to come to love this slice of paradise just behind Dante Fascell Park as much my family has over the years.

At first they will cringe when their children beg to play in the street like the other kids, but soon they will embrace it. They will learn when the next hurricane blows through that being without power is not so bad – the block parties on 85th Street are a lot of fun and go on all night. It will only take one Halloween to realize they need 15 times the amount of candy they bought because more than a hundred little hands will be reaching in the bin, and after 9pm the big teenage hands reach in.

I will let them know about the adorable elderly lady across the street, Dorita, who loves small children and loves watching them for you! She is my favorite neighbor.

These are the most tenacious Buyers I have known – and I told them many times their persistence would pay off (even when I doubted it myself). They sold their home in South Miami two years ago so they could find a more accommodating house for an elder parent that would soon be living with them, and for two young-adult children who they still enjoy having live at home.

Everyone had their own agenda – grandma needed to be on a ground level with separate quarters, children are too old to share a bath, dogs need a yard, and working Buyers didn’t have the time or energy to invest in a large renovation – mind you these were times where short sales and foreclosures dominated the market, and many of these homes were in poor condition. In two years we looked at more than 50 houses (did hundreds of ‘drive bys’), made offers on many, waited on end to hear about short sale approvals, kept looking, had MANY discouraging days, but alas we found the perfect home and the stars lined up.exteriorfront_500exteriorback_500

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tenacity and perseverance is what it takes purchase in today’s market – inventory is so low, demand is so high, prices are rising, multi-offers are often the norm. It can be a real roller coaster but most important is that you stay in the game, move swiftly, and you must have an experienced, knowledgeable realtor. At the speed properties are moving you need to see new listings within hours of them going on the market, have all the information and technology needed to make an intelligent offer quickly (should that be the case), and follow-thru methodically and carefully without mistakes that can delay or even cancel a closing. I specialize in South Miami, High Pines, Coral Gables, Coconut Grove, Pinecrest, and Palmetto Bay, and would be delighted to be that realtor for you.

Just Sold by Valaree Byrne in Schenley Park! 5810 SW 32nd Street

List Price: $365,000

Yesterday we closed on this sweet home in Schenley Park – a wonderful little community on the edge of the Cities of South Miami and Coral Gables, just east of Miami Children’s Hospital. It closed at a record price per square foot, but that was not the best part of the transaction. This was a ‘feel good’ sale. Seller was a charming older woman who raised 6 children in this 3 bedroom/1bath gem. Bought it in 1952 from the developer (the Title Policy was half page long!), and given choice of fireplace or second bath they chose fireplace! 60 years of wonderful memories in Schenley Park, and Lois was admittedly sad to leave. Prior to closing hour the Buyer came for the traditional walk-thru, and before we walked out the door Rafael told me the reason he purchased the house (at the price that he did) was because he felt the good karma and love in that house. Said he saw it the moment he walked in the door. So did I.

If you would like to know more about Schenley Park or the South Miami area please call me anytime. It will be worth the conversation!
